The beautiful and charming Susan and I woke up around 5:00am to take the dogs out before the weather really started to get bad. We've been glued to the television and watched the eye of the storm come onshore just south of Naples, FL, a little over ab hour after we got out of bed. It looks Wilma's mid-section will bounce through southern Palm Beach County right around Boca Raton.
Outside, as I type this, the trees in our neighborhood are bent over by sustained wind gusts of around sixty miles per hour. We still have electricity, but I don't know for how long. Our house is situated so that we can step out onto our screened in porch and take a look at the storm and suffer little from wind and rain. It's quite a sight. I'm glad this isn't happenning in the middle of the night.
